    I agree entirely with this characterization of Barr. But one thing I think is missed here: Demonizing line police officers makes as much sense (as in no sense at all) as when people spit on ordinary soldiers when they came home from Viet Nam. The courts can deal very well with police officers who go WAY over the line. Think Michael Slager/Walter Scott, NOT Derek Chauvin/George Floyd. But when social media becomes Judge, jury, & executioner, things go off the rails.....as in the very real, unjustified crucifixion of Chauvin. The problem lies with management.....NOT labor.

    A community should not earn respect from the police. But also a police force doesn't work when it has no respect from the community, the politicians, by the media. I wouldn't want to be dealing with the crime in America with the hatred the police force gets while they do many things well but get 0% respect. You need to acknowledge who deals with the crime.

    When Barr broke with Trump and announced that there was no evidence of widespread voter fraud and then resigned was no act of courage. It was a calculated move because he could read the tea leaves and knew Trump was a lost cause. Barr is an astute politician just like McConnell and saw that the crap was going to hit the fan and tried to remove himself from the spread. He’s a slimy weasel but politically smarter than Trump. Which is a low Barr to cross.

    This just explains why Barr left office at the end of Dec. before the Jan. 6th riots. He didn’t want to be culpable. He knows the law better than Trump’s closest advisors. Barr didn’t want to deal with another possible Trump impeachment knowing that Trump was lying about the results of a stolen election and waited to see how the courts handled the facts in each state that was being contested. Once Trump lost his appeals Barr knew how this could possibly end and left town as they call it. Plus I am sure personally he was done dealing with Trump’s BS.
